SOURCE: the second hand is not moving

Are you sure the big second hand is not used for the chronograph? I once had a watch that did exactly that. There was a small second hand in the lower left which was the normal secondhand, while the big second hand was used only for the chronograph. It annoyed the cr*p out of me, so I always had the chronograph running, just so the second hand would move.

SOURCE: the second hand is not moving

I have the same problem with my watch. The second hand
tends to stop even if it's not dim. Leave the watch outside
in bright sun for several hours. I've found that this will charge the watch so that afterwards,
the second hand will work even inside (well, not all the time,
but if it's fairly bright).

You would have to remove the movement from the case, remove the hand and reinstall it, to where you want it.

If your watch was not stored where it could have light shining on it the LI battery would drain completely. There is a possible solution although it does not work all the time. It depends on how badly the battery has been allowed to drain.

Setup a lamp that will shine on a counter 24 hours a day and set your watch there. It helps if the lamp is about 1.5 - 2 feet above the watch. A 60 watt incand. lamp will work fine.

Leave your watch under this lamp for 3 - 4 days 24 hours a day. This will supply the solar cells with enough energy to recharge the battery and get it working again. If after this time it is still not working then the battery is just not going to accept a charge again or there is something else wrong that a watchmaker is going to have to fix for you.

Hope this helps.

Which way is clockwise as you hold it in your hand and one time that i set it it went around by it self another times i had to wind manually


Clockwise is the way you read the numbers 12,1,2,3,4,5, etc. the way the hands move. If there s a digital display that is supposed to match the hands, Set it first then find the menu setting for hands

I need to know how to set my 8700 calibre watch


Hi,here is a solution to help you out:
1. Pull the crown out one click.
A. Turn dial until function hand rests on "CAL"
2. Pull dial out one more click (should be all the way out)
A. hold down button "A" (top button) until the second hand completes one counter clockwise rotation (should be pointing at current month)
B. Press "A" button a second time and the Day/Leap year hand will move.
3. At this point spin the crown either backwards or forwards and watch as the Day/Leap year hand spins clockwise or counter-clockwise. The Date will adjust per each revolution.

However,you still have every reason to own the manual of your wrist watch for future references,so follow the link below to download the manual of your wrist watch;
http://www.citizenwatch.com/COA/English/settings.asp

There are so many aplications use of the manual will be manditory.

Use the numbers on the back of your watch and you will have a PDF version of your instruction manual.


Thanks and take care

The second hand is not moving


Got the same problem guys. i have one of the new electronic diving eco drives.
First time i managed to get it going again, by forcing all the hands to the top for diving mode, then back to normal, this action ´nudged´the minute hand back into motion, but a little later it stuck again at the same spot.
I guess mines going back to the factory, and i´m gonna b watchless for a few weeks :(
